bilge 5

Taking off the cover! Yikes thats some dust!

Yesterday was spent doing the same thing you might be doing. Getting ready for Lake Dora. The “Trusty ” is ready and so is WECATCEM. We were able to clean the bilge, which was already kinda clean since she has a new 5200 bottom, but we wanted to correct the color and while the engine is out, enabled us to get in all the nooks and crannys.  Mmmmm like butta on a English Muffen.

The dirty bilge, wrong color. This is the color from Sandesky paint. Its too dark.

Yes my back hurts

Ta Da!

We also were able to clean up and detail the trailer and finish the lettering. The plan is to put the engine in at Katzs on Friday, and head down back to DC after a water test on Lake Hopatcong. Woohooo! just one more week until we fun test her!

    Yup we were doing the same thing. All loaded and leaving in about 2 hours.

    Would love to stop for a visit, but we are taking the DELMARVA, see you at Dora!

    Might want to correct that illegal exhaust while you are in there.

      Maybe he is referring to no double clamps on the exhaust????

    The slogan on the trailer is fantastic, Matt. Details matter! That’s also why I’m also now a proud owner of an EEz-Inn ladder.

      I love those ladders, but in a runabout, won’t the hooks wreck the 1/2 round upholstery?

    Well Papa Bear and Cubbies are on the water and heading for Tavares, we sure hope to see you all there in 11 days.
